Exploring “Solothurn and its surroundings”

"Book a unique tour with Switzerland’s first Mercedes Sprinter convertible panorama bus. The vehicle is equipped for all four seasons and offers ideal travel comfort, no matter the weather. Enjoy a tour with an all-encompassing 360-degree view, whether the panorama roof is open or closed. You will become acquainted with Solothurn and its surroundings as you embrace the motto: The journey is the destination!

The route takes you around the city walls of Solothurn, past the Krummturm Tower and on to Schloss Waldegg. After a break (with or without a museum tour), you will travel on to the mystical Verena Gorge, where you will disembark and learn more about this special place of natural energy. Passing through Lommiswil, the journey continues to Altreu, a popular Solothurn excursion destination right on the banks of the River Aare. Storks are king in Altreu.

You will visit the Infozentrum Witi, where you will learn more about storks and their re-established habitat. Tours can be booked upon request."
